Edgar Jerome Ltd is proud to support the Aldershot Rotary Club.

John Jerome Director of Edgar Jerome Ltd, joined the Rotary Club of Aldershot  in 1997. He became President of the club in 2010 and after his time as president, was awarded the prestigious Paul Harris award.

Rotary was founded by Paul Harris in Chicago over a hundred years ago in 1905 and came to Britain in 1911.

Rotary came to Aldershot in 1928 and is one of around 31,300 clubs in Rotary International spread over 163 countries and geographical regions. Rotary has nearly 1.3million members worldwide who share the common objectives of fostering high moral and ethical standards in business and the professions whilst, at the same time, initiating and supporting community service projects locally, nationally and internationally. The regular weekly meetings provide an opportunity for members both men and women from business or the professions to enjoy each other's company and to develop business and social relationships. Speakers are regularly invited to introduce a topic of interest for the members and lively discussions usually follow. Associated closely with fellowship, is the idea of service to the community. This takes several forms including fund raising and active participation in community projects. This may be something as simple as providing marshals for the town's Victoria Day to working on major international projects following natural disasters.

Within Rotary, members often speak of 'The Family of Rotary' and Aldershot Rotary Club is strongly orientated towards full integration with their families in their fund raising  activities. There are often regular events held in which partners, families and friends may join in.

John Jerome has supported  the Anthony Nolan Bone Marrow Trust  for twenty years. He and his wife Cheryl ,who has donated bone marrow, set up the first awareness and fund raising group in Aldershot at a time when the Trust was just beginning to make the public aware of the need for bone marrow donors. John continues to support the Trust by giving the monies raised from his "talks" about the history of the Jerome family.
